Antony Dunkels will work in Brunswick’s London office, advising clients on litigation, disputes, regulation and policy.
The qualified barrister most recently worked in Edelman’s Litigation and Legal Affairs practice and has previously worked at consultancies including Cellcourt Communications, Bell Pottinger, and Hudson Sandler, as well as several legal firms earlier in his career.
Dunkels specialises in litigation, strategic communications, reputation management, crisis and business risk.
“In a world where business faces growing legal and regulatory challenges, clients are hungry for trusted advice that draws on a blend of professional expertise. Antony brings to Brunswick a wealth of experience as both a lawyer and a strategic communications advisor across a variety of sectors,” Brunswick chief executive Neal Wolin said.
“We are excited he is joining our global Litigation Communications offer, as part of which he will provide first-rate, senior advice to our clients and make significant contributions to our firm.”
Charlie Potter, a partner and co-lead of Brunswick’s global Litigation Communications offer, said Dunkels will strengthen the conultancy’s capabilities in “complex, large-scale, cross-border mandates and help drive the expansion of the offer into new areas, in the UK and internationally”.
This year, Brunswick has promoted Meaghan Ramsey and Tom Burns as managing partners and co-leads of its London office, and hired Jess Frost as a partner in the consultancy's Public Affairs offering.
